    This airport is a gem for international travellers. Get off plane, only people in line at customs are people on your plane! I once waited in line with a whole 10 people

    If you don't have friends/associates picking you up, GET A LIMO! The expanse is not terribly greater than a taxi, but you can strech those legs after your plane ride.

    the phone room between security and C concourse is the best place to get some work down while between flights... power and usually quiet.

    Don’t come here hungry. Nowhere good to eat, or sit for that matter. And make sure your stuff is charged!

    Definitely get a fast pass so you can cut the security line. It's still not as bad as LAX.

    If flying Southwest on any B gate before the end of the concourse, get there early because there is horribly inadequate seating.

    Make sure to swing by Reilly's Daughter in the back right of food court for a good pint of Guinness. Ask for Boz and then ask him about all the famous people he knows like Jenny McCarthy.
